Pandora is an online audio streaming app that offers millions of songs to its customers for free. Pandora is similar to Spotify and YouTube Music which gives heavy competition to the music giants. In Pandora, you can hear as many songs as you want but with ads included in-between the playback. It also offers a premium subscription which offers many excellent features, including offline playback. But, it costs $5-$10 per month. So in this article, we explain to you how to get Pandora premium subscription for free.
Pandora is available in the US, Australia, and New Zealand because GRO – Global Radio Operation has prevented it from launching globally. The only downside of Pandora is that 90% of its features are available to its premium subscribers only.

You can make a group of six members and share the Family subscription.
Similar to the Families plan, Pandora also offers a Student plan. In this, you will get all the Pandora Premium features at $4.99 per month.

Apart from these methods, you can get the Pandora premium subscription for free by using the MOD APKs. You can find plenty of Pandora Premium MOD APKs that are available for free.

Sometimes, these MOD APKs will harm your smartphones too. So, think twice before getting these MOD APKs.
